SU file to Layout not good enough quality

Hi there,

I have just transferred a SU file to layout. But the quality is not clear enough. Is there something I can do to enhance the quality?

File>Document setup>Paper, check the Screen and Output quality settings. I keep the Screen quality to Low for speed and set Output to High.

Hi Anssi,

Thank you very much for your suggestion. I did make the changes but unfortunately it didn’t make a difference when printing a hard copy.

Try rendering the viewport as Vector.

Share the LO file so we can see what you are working with.

Lighting layout.layout (613.9 KB)

This is the second time I used layout.

Here I’ve changed the rendering to Vector.

Try printing the resulting PDF.

It would be a good idea to take some time to go through the instructional content for LayOut at

thank you very much! I think the main problem is the printer. Printed it out with another printer and it was fine. Thank you for everyone’s help!

Also, when exporting to PDF, turn off JPEG compression in th eoptions. It creates very ugly artifacts in raster rendered plan views.


Glad you solve this.

However a question, I did download the LO file but the file doesn’t get open with my 2021 LO version.
Never had this problem before.

Any idea?
